it was putting on the pipeline deal that so many of the midwestern senators want. from canada to texas. and forcing the president to make a decision. we'll see how wise a move that was by republicans. none the less, the big battle is going to be how are they going to pay for this and that's where republicans hope to make enroads. >> how much damage has there been to john boehner's reputation, leadership right now? >> one of the things we've known about john boehner is that he has a caucus that didn't listen to him. this is not your grandfather's politics anymore. this is a bunch of people in the -- who have been elected by tea party supporters, most of who the freshmen any way, had previous lives with jobs and they don't as i think somebody b earlier said, they don't follow the regular political pattern such as your speaker. take this one for the speaker. they don't do that. but he also has -- he's made friends up there. he has been up there a long time. he knows how to play this game and he does have friends in that republican caucus. it's damaging. they are angry at him, but what the

to be with you, thank you. >> your man from president, rick perry, the texas governor, look at the latest polls and i want to pick your brain. the "washington post" poll has gingrich 33, romney 18, paul 18, rick perry 11. in south carolina, gingrich 38, romney 23 and perry 9%. did you pick the wrong guy? >> no, i think this race has proved it is a very fluent situation and already newt gingrich is starting to get the flak that every temporary front-runner seems to get. this is going to be a long contest and i think rick perry has an excellent chance to move to the middle between romney and what's happening with newt gingrich. so i don't think this thing is over at all. it is very volatile. i think the real sparks are still yet to come. >> did the rick perry gaffes, the brain freeze and other issues, did that give you cause? no, i've known rick perry since over ten years ago when he first became governor and put in excellent reforms to their legal system in texas, especially against tort lawyers, he's much better -- came across much better in person than he did in early debates. i think with pra
a conversation with a voter who says she is torn between santorum, bachmann and governor rick perry of texas. leaning perry a bit after the last debate. so if gingrich stalls, the question is who better fits and a subplot of that is a very fierce and split competition right now for the critical evangelical vote wloerz helped the last winner here four years ago. >> he's trying to be restrained, gloria, in hitting back. he's trying to take the high road. is that a smart strategy, not so smart because john is absolutely right. his numbers slowly have been going down in iowa in recent days. >> right. he's got a barrage of negative ads running against him. did he fight back with bachmann. he said he reserves the right to fight back during a debate. the question is how long is he going to be able to keep this up? look, the notion of crony capitalism and washington insiderism is not good in a republican primary. and he's been attacked by both bachmann and rick perry for being -- and mitt romney for that matter -- for being a career politician. so he seems to be getting it from all quarters. at some

again, so she may drop out. rick perry has a day job as well. he's the governor of texas and if he doesn't do well in iowa and then new hampshire, he may drop out. i think newt gingrich is going to stay in and see how he does in places like south carolina and florida where he's still strong, at least according to the polls and you know, and ron paul ain't going anywhere and i don't know if rick santorum is at this point either. and then there's jon huntsman, who -- >> jon huntsman is not going to drop out after iowa because he's not even competing in iowa. he saved his -- >> it appears in the polls, he's not catching on there. he's hovering around 10, 12%. i think by this point, he would have wanted to throw some fear into the romney campaign. he's not doing it. >> i've been reading your stuff come out of iowa for as long as you've been watching this stuff. >> you're not that old. >> you write good stuff. >> thank you. >> here's the question. is this any way for americans to elect a president of the united states with so much of the emphasis of 120 people showing up tuesday night in iowa
76-year-old texas congressman is at the top of most polls in aiea as we enter the stretch for the white house. what's refreshing is that ron paul's done it the old fashioned way. andrew sullivan writes that ron paul is generating enthusiasm and support among young voters, democrats and independents. now, you'd think that is just what the republican party is looking for. somebody who can beat obama next november. republicans are set to spin a ron paul victory in iowa by basically ignoring. iowa's governor says they'll focus on who comes in second or third. a washington examiner column by timothy kearney suggests the primary contest will get ugly if ron paul wins iowa. he points to pat buchanan's new hampshire victory in 1996 where the republican establishment and the mainstream media rallied to crush his campaign. carney says if paul wins, his critics will imply he's a racist or cook or conspiracy theorist. his quotes. whether the gop establishment likes it or not, ron paul has the power to really shake things up. people in iowa are rallying around someone who for the first
, that it was racist, antisemitic. what do you say to that? the texas congressman's rise to the top tier in the polls here in iowa has made him a target. check out gingrich's ferocious attack in "the situation room" starting with paul's claim that he did not write and never read racially charged newsletters printed under paul's name. >> as people get to know more about ron paul, who disowns ten years of his own new s lsletter didn't really xwr, had no idea that it was racest, antisemitic, calling for the destruction of israel, all of this is a shock to ron paul? there will come a morning people won't take him as a serious person. >> mitt romney joined in, slamming him for his foreign policies, specifically his position on iran. >> the greatest threat that israel faces and that the world faces is a nuclear iran. and i -- we have different views on this. some of the people, actually one of the people running for president thinks it's okay for iran to have a nuclear weapon. i don't. >> in iowa, paul took a number of questions from the audience, but none about the attacks from romney and gingrich. >> how
from the campaign trial to a certain degree. the texas congressman is known for being unconventional both politically and personally. dana bash has been talking to some of ron paul's colleagues on capitol hill. tell ourl viewers what you're learning. >> we know what ron paul's house colleagues tell me, wolf, fits in with my own observation is that he's pretty much a loner. when house republicans get together for their regular meetings, paul doesn't show up. i was asking one lawmaker today if they had even heard paul speak, they said, speak, he's never there. i'm told he tends to show up, ask questions of the witnesses, then leave. no chitchat, back slapping or hanging out in the republican cloak room. now, i can tell you as reporter, when i'm trying to get the mood of the caucus or figure out which way a piece of legislature may go, the last person i or my team would ask the ron paul. he's not involved, connected this way, to house republicans. for sources, they say this is important. don't mistake the fact that paul doesn't have many friends that he isn't liked. he keeps to himself.
texas cut, things went south after a conference call. so cnn knows that the speaker is having this call at 5:00 p.m. this evening and so, i don't think you will hear anything from the white house until they know that everything has gone well on that call. but the bottom line is it does look like the president at this point, is going to you know, with their fingers crossed inside this building, be able to go on his, be able to spend christmas with his family in hawaii and have a payroll tax cut extension through the new year. and for the white house, this has been the perfect sort of political and policy issue for the president. if you think about the last time he had a stalemate, a standoff with the house of representatives, it was over this very complicated confusing issue over the debt talks which didn't really touch any americans directly. one of those issues that hits almost every american in the paycheck. in their wallet. $40 for the average american would have been missing from their paycheck if this doesn't work out and so for the president, he was quite literally fighting for wo
to texas and that has president obama vowing to veto the bill if it were to make it to his desk. let's go to capitol hill, our congressional correspondent kate bolduan is joining us. >> reporter: hey there, wolf, the house is set to vote still this evening, it could be and this can always slip, but it could be in the next hour, hour and a half, two hours, and republican leaders in the house, they are confident they have the votes to pass this measure. but over in the senate, senate majority leader harry reid said they are wasting valuable time because the republican measure, he says, will not pass in the senate. one major obstacle is that controversial provision you mentioned that republicans have added to their bill in the house, this provision having to do with the keystone oil pipeline project. add to all of that that the white house just this afternoon issued a veto threat to the house bill, this clearly shows at this point, wolf, they are no closer to a compromise and the clock is very quickly ticking down, wolf. >> kate, what about plans for members of congress to escape washington?
